- Pub. Date:
- Brookes Publishing
This optional scoring CD-ROM for the CSBS DPT Infant-Toddler Checklist (a routine screening checklist to determine whether a child needs a developmental evaluation) makes scoring quick and painless. Users input responses and the program calculates precise scores based on the embedded norms. The CD-ROM includes a complete copy of the Infant-Toddler Checklist to print out each time one is needed, and the accompanying User's Guide allows busy clinicians to use this first step of the CSBS DPT by itself as a quick, valid screening system. This program also makes correspondence and recordkeeping easier with screening reports for clinicians to add to the child's health record and sample explanatory letters that can be adapted and sent home to the family.
